The problem with this is is makes no mention of:
- Condition of labels on cartridge games. Cartridge games don't get scratches, they get peanut butter and jelly gunk and tears/fading on the labels.


Couldn't it be argued that it makes it in less than "excellent condition" considering the definition of "excellent" on glyde means no personal markings? What I think it comes down to is common sense. If it has peanut butter and jelly on it, then it obviously isn't excellent. Problem is, some sellers don't seem to have common sense....

Some of these jokers know what their sending, they just don't want put it up for sale on a reputable site like Amazon or Ebay with PayPal/customer protection, or trade it's too crappy condition on CAG, GTZ or at Gamestop. Their trying to pawn it off on some buyer and hoping for a idiot to make quick cash, then you have some morons in the mix selling and a few actual good sellers.

I know earlier in the week I was complaining about how long shipping takes as it wasn't supposed to be here until the middle of the week, but it actually arrived yesterday. On top of that the copy is pristine, very very happy with Glyde at this point, think I'll go back and see if I can't get some more stuff off there.

Two of my orders with the $5 off hasn't shipped and I don't think they're going to, on both games the sellers received the mailers almost a week ago. I've been emailing customer service and they said they will replace the $5 coupons if the orders are cancelled. So that's good news.

Four of mine from the $5 off fiasco have arrived while my last one finally shipped the other day and should be here soon. Wasn't expecting to get all 5 but I'll definitely take it!

Glyde is a good idea with bad execution if you ask me. I used to sell my stuff on there but there always ended up problems. Either the mailers would come so much later or never at all. Sometimes I would get mailers for stuff I never even sold. I would have buyers take the case/manual and send back only the game or even swap out the game with their cracked/scratched copies (I had a watermark to verify it wasn't my copy).

As a buyer it was equally unreliable, mostly because the majority of sellers on Glyde lie about the quality. The accountability is so much less without a feedback system in place that sellers can pretty much send you anything and if it's crap and you want to return it Glyde punishes the buyer by splitting the return cost.

At least eBay & Amazon have measures in place where you dispute the quality of something without getting penalized for a poor seller. You may pay $5 more, but that's like them giving you a free turn at a slot machine. You might end up winning, but you will probably lose.

I don't think they're open Sunday not sure about Saturday. They will have to extend the deadline for you if they haven't replied to your message relax.


I received a reply from a CS rep at 10:55 PM on 07/22. That's Sunday night. Pretty obvious that they were working from home, which I find really nice -- almost like 24 hour service.

Hurry while supplies last :!: LOL

Even more evidence some of these sellers are plainly retarded............


In regards to overpriced items, I'm guessing those are 3rd party merchant links, with a contract deal from Glyde. Have you noticed that you can't list certain things as used but the same things are available for purchase as new? And that you can't list more than a few dollars above the "suggested market price?" That's probably why.

Just thought I would post for those wondering that I received my "swag" kit today.
It's the t-shirt from the page with a little thank you card. T-shirt is made out of a nice material and will gladly wear this. Thanks Glyde! :D

I haven't received my $5 'refer a friend' bonus either, even though they've since received the game in the mail.

I also got my t-shirt. Mine has a beat up Link.

I also got two $5 refer a friend bonuses already from when the coupons were working for everyone. I have no idea if they were actually 2 new users or not.

I get it. For me if it was a game I wanted I'd totally do it. I'm not really a collector nor a re-player and I tend to spill beer on my game cases and art half the time :)
